Description 

You can't miss this line on the north side of the big boulder. Look for the set of solitary pockets out on the face. Then look at how perfectly smooth the wall is below them...Nary a wee divot nor miniscule tooth. Sept there is one out there. Start out on the boulder to the right of the pockets. With a right hand side pull on the arete, hop up into the pockets and get established. A small foot pocket way out left will let you gun it up to the lip. Climb into the shallow trough. Pretty fun and just steep enough to be really enjoyable.

You can also climb up the left arete to a couple of deep pockets and then move out the pockets on the face. About the same difficulty.

I really liked this problem. Some of the most comfortable holds I pulled on and some nice slopers at the top!

left variation with no arete is fantastic. just pockets and crimps on face. somewhat contrived but very fun.
